Why travel to North and South America?

Picture yourself exploring New York; not just the major sights and attractions; you’re going deep inside the city, discovering the places only locals know about, experiencing unique traditions and tasting the flavours (anyone for Ben & Jerry’s?). Now you’re in Canada’s Banff, soaking up the sensational scenery, mingling with the locals and dining on delicious Canadian cuisine. Pop over to South America’s Peru and see yourself lunching with a Peruvian family, immersed in the city’s atmosphere and delving into its colonial past.

If you’ve ever dreamed of not only seeing North and South America, but truly experiencing it, a Trafalgar guided holiday is for you...

Anne and Duncan on the Maid of the Mist at Niagara Falls, Eastern Canada

Our Best of Eastern Canada Trip

Two Trafalgar holidays inside a month – how good is that!! After a few days in Boston, we followed our Enchanting Maritimes trip with a journey through Best of Eastern Canada. As we expected, there was a real contrast between the two holidays. Both were fantastically enjoyable, but on this one the French flavour added another dimension to the experience. We began in bustling Toronto – a great introduction to the many faces of Canada, with its mix of different cultures, its beautiful parks, stately historical buildings and soaring CN Tower. And the shopping was outstanding! Next, we were off to Niagara Falls. No matter how much you think you know about this famous sight, nothing can prepare you for its breathtaking vastness. We had a marvelous time viewing the falls from both above and below aboard the Maid of the Mist charter boat...
